MCEDD moves to April 2021 with September cancellation

After many attempts to reschedule the dates for MCE-Deepwater Development this Fall, the Board of Directors for GulfQuest, the organizers of MCEDD, have regretfully decided to cancel this year’s conference and exhibition.

The board explored multiple options, including a virtual event, but ultimately decided that the best path forward was to focus on a high quality, in-person event in April 2021. It is our pleasure to announce that MCEDD 2021 will be held at the London Novotel West on April 20-22, 2021.

MCEDD 2021 will launch the Call for Abstracts in the coming months and content originally scheduled for this year will automatically be considered for the 2021 agenda. Please note that our distinguished Directed Content presenters will be invited to participate in our 2021 event.

Delegates with an existing registration can transfer their reservation to the 2021 event. Please contact us if you have any questions about the new dates.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you there!

Kind regards,

GulfQuest Board of Directors

Preliminary Technical Program Announced

Once again, the decisions on technical abstracts were difficult. Due to the high number of quality submissions for the 2020 Program, less than 40% of those submitted were voted into the Program by the Advisory Board. Once again, Subsea Technologies garnered the most number of abstracts, and thus the largest number of session tracks (four). These coupled with high-impact sessions on Marine Construction, Floating Production, and two session tracks dedicated to Pipelines, Flowlines and Risers, offer one of the most in-depth Programs in many years. For the 4th year in a row MCEDD is proud to include a riveting set of presentations in our Alternative Energy Session.

MCEDD 2020 will open with the Operator Forum on Tuesday, 21 April 2020, with Wednesday morning dedicated to the Plenary Operator-Contract Panel Session, and Thursday morning’s Plenary Session, the Financial Outlook Panel. Deepwater is back and MCEDD 2020 will showcase this.
